Abstract:
"A naval officer and a lady holding up a parasol walk arm-in-arm along the fortified quay of a naval port. He is accosted by a petty officer, hat in hand, and asks: "Well Mate! just come on shore? how did you leave the ships crew?" The mate: "Why Captain, I have left them all to a man the merriest fellows in the world--I flogged seventeen of them as your Honor commanded, and they are happy it is over; and the rest are happy because they have escaped." Behind, a sentry stands at attention. On the right a sailor wearing a top-hat makes a boat fast to the quay."--British Museum online catalogue.
